Buying my first car and there is a 2018 Renault Clio expression for sale at a good price I’ve seen the reviews and they look like they're a good car but because they are European I am wondering if anyone knows if the replacement parts are expensive and to fix is more expensive than other cars because of the genuine parts?
They used to be but have not compared for years (sold by Renault due to high spares cost years ago) but since we are in the Euro zone etc car spare prices may be more competitive.
Suggest you try asking the dealer(s) Renault and any other (make) for the price of replacing something eg.
Starter motor. Air inlet filter. Then compare £ for the self. The rough guide to prices though you may?
